My brother just bought a really nice new loft. I want to give him a gift of home automation for it. I'm fluent in about 10 computer programming languages, have some experience in electronic system design, etc. However, I have zero knowledge of the current state of the home automation industry.
The loft has lots of beautiful lighting tracks, all halogen and incandescent. There are currently 10 Lutron Maestro digital (non-wireless) master dimmers (MA-600) and about 15 slave dimmers (MA-R). I don't *think* any of this stuff is compatible with an HA solution.
IMMEDATE GOAL: We'd like to add to this a network/computer control bridge, a couple motion/occupancy sensors, and one daylight/photo-sensor.
LONG-TERM GOAL: Add temperature management. Add some habit/living-preference responsive features. He has a Sonos system and 5-room audio distribution. I'd like to integrate this too, although the existing separate control from phones/tablets is fine for now.
Can you recommend a product line for me?
